The Immigration Economy

I am now coming to the end of my course at the University of Westminster in Journalism. As many of you have probably noticed, this blog has not been a hive of activity for a couple of months now! However, thought I’d upload a recent radio project I did for one of my final assessments.

It looks at the impact of immigration on the UK following a recent report by the NIESR that immigrants, from Eastern Europe alone, contribute to 5% of the growth in GDP, but it came with criticism from groups such as Migrationwatch UK who see this as a “poor deal” for UK citizens.

This podcast looks at the real impact of immigration: reaffirming the costs and benefits of allowing immigrants to live and work here. Do they really take all our jobs and drain oour public services or can they help rebuild our economy, and what would happen if we were to have no immigrants?
